I just want to let you all know--

Posted by abbeyminor on March 22, 2013, 9:39 p.m.

I'm not gone or anything like that. I'm still here.

However, if I log in at all for the next week or so, it will be purely to lurk and/or respond to comments on this blog.

Something rather big came up last week and I probably won't really be online very much for a little while.

So, consider this a small hiatus, I guess?

Basically, a lot of things suck right now. Shaq and I are both running on fumes because Finn has this huge spit-up problem and wakes up a lot.

He was at the hospital last week and it turns out he has colic, which means that occasionally he will scream and cry because he has gas/ for no real reason.

I had to argue with the doctor, calling the office five times before getting him to agree to switch his formula.

I'm sick, Shaq is getting sick, and we're both trying not to get Finn sick.

We can't get him to fall asleep when we want to because he sleeps all day.

And on Wednesday, my Gram passed away, so right now I'm just spending a lot of time at my mom's house, and in the shower, trying my best to relax.

So, I still love you, and I'm still here. But I'll be gone for a minute.

That's okay. I don't post for weeks, even months at a time and I"m still considered active… I think.

EDIT: Read more. Man, baby's sick, mama's sick, and even poor daddy's sick. I can just imagine all of you in bed with thermometers in your mouth and that thing that people put on their heads in cartoons when they're sick.

You know what ah'm talkin about. It looks like a whoopee cushion.

Being active isn't a requirement for 64Digits, But it is nice. :D

What formula are you currently using? I've had best results with soy milk Powder base (Enfamil brand I think).

Hope you guys feel better, and sorry about your gram. :(

There's no need to post a "Still active" blog. Generally activity can be determined with the date of the last login and whatnot. Especially when you have many stressful things going on in your life.

Hope everything turns out well soon enough with little Finn and the two of you. :)

So sorry to hear about your gram. :(

I hope you, Shaq and Finn all feel better soon!

Thanks guys, I actually think we might have found a formula that works. It is in fact soy, Juurian, but similac. Last night he only spit up once between 3 bottles so that's better.

Colic? Yeah, my sister had that. Try Gripe Water, worked like a charm here.

Hope he grows out of it. My son had acid reflux so bad it ruined his teeth. He had to have caps and crowns on most of his teeth at the age of 3.
